Step by Step paper crafting tutorials

For today’s tutorial I thought I would combine it with one of our camp challenges and create a layout using only cardstock. But even “naked” you wanna look good so what better way to create a little interest than add a little ink! LOL!!

You will need…
Embossing folder and die cutting tool (big shot, cuttlebug etc)
pigment ink (not dye…needs to be slow drying)

Once you have chosen your embossing folder you will need to decide which side you want to ink up…you will be able to get two patterns for each folder depending on which side you add the ink to. The raised pattern will be where the ink is applied and the recess with be the “resist” and stay the colour of your cardstock

Once you’ve added your ink just emboss with your tool….


…and add to your project!
Easy peasy!!
